Hi,

 

AdWords reports conversions from the date and time of the click that led to the successful action, not from the date of the successful action itself.

 

For example, let's say someone saw your ad and clicked it on July 19th, but did not make a purchase on your site until the next day, July 20th. In AdWords, the conversion would be attributed to July 19th, the day of the click. In Google Analytics, however, the conversion is attributed to July 20th, the day the conversion actually occurred.

 

I hope it helps.

 

Thanks!

Thank you. I just wanted to make sure our programmer didnt add the code in the wrong place. (which I think he did) I think he added it to every page instead of order confirmation page.
